There is.  It is called exp-kicad-lib.ulp


You have to run it from inside Eagle as a user language program.  It
will export the libraries in Kicad format.

Also,  I am able to know compile Kicad on Windows (I could only
successfully compile it under Linux before) so if anyone is interested
I can tell you what I did to get the enviroment set up to compile it.
